MSA Sport is the lead designer for the renovations to the home of Miami University’s Varsity Soccer Program.
Upgrades and Additions
The project features a new, distinct stadium entrance and plaza for fans that connects back to the surrounding athletic campus from the east side of Yager Stadium. The complex is an additional unifying element in this part of campus through its new architecture and materials. In addition, the complex includes a new 700 seat bleacher structure and a complete re-skin and renovation of the existing press box. Technology upgrades and the infrastructure for new LED sports field lighting enhance the TV media/production and game day experience. The fan plaza incorporates an area for temporary concessions and food trucks, and uses the existing infrastructure in the adjacent east side of Yager Stadium.
Results of the Renovation
The design includes infrastructure for future support buildings that will contain permanent concessions and locker/team rooms. The final design of the complex is the culmination of several years of comprehensive studies, planning and collaboration between Miami University and MSA Sport. The resulting design is one of the premier soccer venues in the Mid-American Conference and NCAA Division 1 soccer.
